Gemini Profiling Sonars for STR
Posted by Irina Tabakina
Tritech announced the sale of multiple Gemini 620pd multibeam profiling sonars to Subsea Technology and Rentals (STR), Great Yarmouth. The sales of Gemini 620pd, technology for subsea profiling operations, follow on from the introduction of the Gemini Narrow Beam Imager (NBI) to the company’s multibeam range.
STR, which has recently refocused its business, already offers a suite of Tritech industry-standard sensors and sonar for rental. This latest purchase will augment its rental pool and further support customer requests for a multibeam bathymetric profiling tool, Tritech said.
Tritech’s Gemini 620pd profiling sonar operates at 620 kHz and is able to provide 10mm range results with an angular resolution of 0.5Â°. The Gemini 620pd can be configured as a single-head system, or set up as in a dual-head mode for accurate pipeline profiling utilizing the Gemini Hub for accurate synchronisation while processing.
